    Thanks for your update. I like hearing how the S22 is working for you along with your thoughts. I received my S22 with the first preorder and absolutely love it. I agree with you that it feels heavy,...

    This is absolutely hilarious because this is exactly how I don't and can't even open the Gate Keepers. :D I actually slide the metal hinge back just a tad and allow it to squeeze the Gate Keeper...

    The strap keepers did the same thing to me. After trying multiple ways to attach them, I think I've come up with two good solutions that work very well, at least for me.

    The first solution is to...

    Big thanks for this... even if you destroyed my dreams. :D I didn't think it would work but you never know! I've got the Med Cafe FS and it's very nice, but I could really use the extra storage space...

    Yeah I'm sure others have quickly figured this out. I struggle way more with opening gate keepers than I do with opening strap keepers. :D

    I know it's a long shot, and the dimensions say no, but I'm hoping the S25 FS will squeeze into an S22. Any chance someone out there can make my day and tell me that it's possible?

    P.S. I know the...

    I took the S22 sans frame sheet for a short 5 mile hike on Saturday and I love love love the shoulder straps. I had no issues with them and they...

    The hybrid install is because I didn't have enough space on the strap to install the strap keeper the TB way. It also makes the extra strap more secure. The way I did it, the extra strap can't be...

    At around 5.5' tall, I'm of average height for a female but I also have a ridiculous amount of strap hanging down from the S22. Because of this and many more unruly strap reasons, I'm also totally...

    Yep that's the pocket I thought you meant, and one of the first things I thought when I opened up the TB box and saw the pack was that the chin pocket was smaller. It's not just you,...

  13. Ideas for repurposing the laptop compartment of the Synik

    I don't think this has been hashed out yet, and I know that not everyone has received their preorders, but I'd love a brainstorming session with current and future Synik users how you plan to use the...

    I agree that all of the Synapses are heavy-ish bags and they can be a bit hot, as well. The great thing about heaviness with these bags is that it translates into sturdiness and protection. IMO the...
